Single-storey extensions Single story extensions can cost anywhere between $1, 350 per m2 to $2, 100 per m2. This cost depends largely on the type of materials you use and the design you choose. According to Domain, the cost of adding an 80-square-metre ground-floor extension ranges from $164, 526 to $310, 896. The average cost per m2 for an extension outside of London is between £1, 200-£1, 500. In London and the South East, the average cost per m2 is around £1, 500-£2, 000+. For two-storey extensions, add 50% to the cost of a single-storey extension. If you want to add a bathroom or kitchen, add £5, 000-£10, 000. According to HomeAdvisor, the average cost for building additions is between $80 to $200 per square foot without regard to whether it is up or out. While it is usually cheaper to build up than out, that's just the actual construction expense. Costs also vary depending on exactly what the contractor must do. A second storey addition can cost between $1, 850 and $3, 300 per square metre depending on the quality and price of construction materials and inclusions, and if your ground floor foundations need reinforcing to carry the load of the extension. The national average cost of a room addition ranges from $10, 000-$80, 000. Your room addition project cost will depend on the number of square feet, material and construction costs, and repair work required on the existing structure to complete the add-on.
